Re: HELP! - 1.9JTD Auxilliary Belt Shredding
keithglos - it looks as though all you guys are homing me in on the fault. The belt is virtually wrecked, so unable to drive to nearest Alfa garage with it. Spoke with my trusty mobile mechanic this morning and before I told him what you guys thought it was, he said "sounds like the bottom tensioner to me".
The belt has definitely moved over. What are the functions of all of the pulleys on the auxiliary belt. It looks as though there are 2 tensioners. Is one of them 'fixed'?
When the mobile mechanic gets it back on the road, I will take it to the nearest Alfa specialist to get it checked out. I have read recommendations for Heath Road Garage in Sandbach, Cheshire, which is only 30 miles from me.
